Housewife Blues and Chihuahua Stories

Lifelong Texan, love reading from many genres thanks to early childhood readalongs with my Dad, love cooking for my family, working in my yard, playing with my cats and since being diagnosed in late 2012 with RRMS finding ways to keep body and mind active is even more important.
Trickster - Jeff Somers The down and dirty blood magic used in Trickster is not a new one but the ways in which Lem, Mags, Hiram, Amir and the rest implement the magic are beyond the scope of anything I have ever read so far.The entire book becomes centered on one thing stopping Archmage Mika Renar from destroying almost every living thing on the planet, the lengths to which Lem has to go to achieve this are mind boggling and frankly painful.With heart stopping action, brutal scenes of despair and an imaginative use of magical resources this first book in the authors series was about as good as it gets in Urban Fantasy and now am glad to have found his work as wish to immerse my senses in more of it soon!
